The Pioneer Woman in OKC!

A month or so ago, I heard that the Pioneer Woman was coming to OKC on her book signing tour for her new cookbook! I couldn't have been more thrilled and have been anticipating her arrival into the big city ever since! So yesterday was the day that she was here at the Full Circle Bookstoore in 50 Penn Place and sadly none of my girlfriends could go... so I planned on attending the great book signing alone! However, when I got home.. my wonderful fireman offered to go with me.... after all how long could a book signing take right? So we jump into the car and I am grinning from ear to ear because I am sooo excited to see the one and only Ree Drummond... I get my camera out to make sure that there is plenty of space left for new pics.. and what do I learn but that my camera is dead! What... are you kidding me! Of all times to go dead, so what does the wonderful fireman do..stops without even saying a word at 711 and walks in buys a disposable! Yep, we are high class these days.. I was off to the Pioneer Womans book signing with a disposable camera! I doubt the pictures will come out anywhere near the quality of hers :)

Meanwhile Justin is still trying to figure out why I want to go to a book signing of a woman who blogs ... He is totally clueless to this whole other world out there still :) So at 6:30 on the dot, we pull into the bookstore parking lot and it's PACKED! Justin trys to tell me that there is no way there will be alot of people at the signing that all the cars have to be here for something else... well boy was he wrong! As we walked into the bookstore, all you could see were hundreds of people lined up! I guess since I have never attended a book signing before, I didn't know that you needed to show up at noon in order to get at least a decent place in line! Needless to say Justin was amazed and how many people showed up.. and me being so nice.. told Justin that we did not have to stand in line. I just couldnt make him stand there for probably multiple hours.. so I sadly left the bookstore without even a glimpse of Ree. :(

HOWEVER... as we are walking out to our car in the parking garage who should pull up and park next to us but the one and the onlyMARLBORO MAN! And yes ladies, he is just as handsome, no I take that back, he is way more handsome in person! I am sad to report though I didnt even think of getting my new disposable camera out to get pic of him :( I was to much in a hurry to call my mom and tell her who just parked next to us.. and do you want to know her first words, "OMG, Really, He's is sooo Good Looking! Did you get a pic". AHHH.. if only I would have thought to pull out the camera!

Anyway, Hope everyone has a wonderful Friday and a Happy Halloween weekend!

Just tired..

Yes, that is right ... today well I am just tired. It's been a long couple of weeks and I think I am finally starting to feel the impact of the long days, stress, etc. So tonight instead of sewing, cutting out material, doing dishes, working out, analyzing financial statements or organizing my craft room (again) I have decided to take a break and just relax! I can honestly say that I can not remember the last time I sat on the couch with a glass of hot apple cider and watched a movie by myself! It is truly amazing how busy we all get and forget to take time out for ourselves and completely forget what needs to be done for this evening,or tomorrow, or next week...

So tonight while Justin is at the fire station, I am enjoying the peace and quiet of the house, my hot apple cider, and the comfort of my couch, a warm blanket and a girlie movie! What more could a girl ask for! This is pure relaxation... and it's long long overdue!

Guess What! My Logo is Finished!

So it has been a work in progress trying to get everything together to officially start my small little business but things are finally starting to come about! And so I am really excited to show everyone the new logo for Tater Tots and Fire Hoses!

Isn't it awesome! And if you are wondering if I came up with this... well lets be realistic! I may be able to make some onesies but graphic design is certainly not my calling :)

My logo was actually created by Autumn from! And she is also designing my business cards, stickers, etc. She has been amazing to work with and sooo fast! Soooo if anybody is ever in need a logo, etsy banner, personal stickers, etc. she is your gal!

Thanks so much Autumn, I really do appreciate it!

Hope everyone has a great day!

Happy Monday!

Why does the weekend have to go by soooo fast? You never ever have enough time to get everything done! Nothing really new for me to post about...... other than a little bit of sewing of that I did this weekend. I finished 4 orders this weekend.. pics will be posted soon and I got another 15 shirts ready to sew! I am trying to get a bunch of shirts ready so that I can display them at a couple of open houses that I will be doing these next couple of months! OH MY how life has gotten so busy :)

Hope everyone has a great Monday!

It's Friday..WoooHoooo!

Hi all! Well thankfully today is Friday! I think I start looking forward to this day starting on Sunday evening :)

Well as everyone can hopefully see my blog has gotten an AMAZING makeover from my friend Nicole at Sizzlin Savages! She did such a great job and I could not be any happier with the results! Who knew a little makeover could make my blogging so much more enjoyable to me and hopefully everyone else :) So after all her hard work.. I would love to say THANK YOU, THANK YOU, THANK YOU to Nicole! I really do appreciate it!

And just to add a little side note.. Nicole is not only talented at conducting blog makeovers.. but she also has some amazing recipes on her blog and sells Scentsy candles.! So if anyone is looking for some good reading, some good recipes, or some great new smells for the Holiday Season take a look at her blog above and/or her scentsy website

Well I hope everyone has a wonderful weekend... mine will be filled with sewing, more sewing and possibly some drag racing! Yep, the wonderful man of mine has bought us tickets for the races at Thunder Valley in Noble, OK! I really can't say that I have ever been to the drag races... but I will sure be posting all about it on Monday! I guess I better get use to these kind of events... after all our land is only about 3 miles away where you can hear all the engines roaring up! So I guess not only will I soon becoming a country girl... I will also be learning to enjoy the races! OH MY.. how life is changing! Do you think I can wear earplugs? :)

Hope everyone has a great weekend and if you can please take a moment and say a quick prayer for my family and that God's grace will watch over us. But really don't just say a prayer for my family but say a prayer for everyone you know.. because you never know when a friend is truly in need of a prayer! And what a better way to start a weekend than by praying for someone else!

Matching Duo!

How cute are these two in their matching camo gear! This is Sheri and Kelby... one of my dearest friends mom and new baby boy! I mean really... doesn't Sheri look more like an aunt than a grandma! I can only hope that I am looking that good when I have grand kids!

Sheri had asked me to make her a couple of onesies for baby Kelby and well.. I think he is pulling them off pretty good! Here is another pic of him in his "K" onesie that I made him!

Isn't he just precious! I could not be more happy for Keri and JC. I mean look at this happy family!

And just for a little bit of background on this wonderful couple and how Justin and I know them... Keri and I have been best friends since 7th grade (yep that is about 18 years if you want to know how long) and her husband JC is on the OKC Fire department with Justin! So life couldn't have worked out better for the two of us... best friends for years and then marrying fireman in the same rookie class! Needless to say this family will always hold a special place in my heart!

Love you all and congrats to the cutest little family I know :)

Weekend Fun!

Hi all! Well this weekend was a whirlwind but it was sooo much fun! I had two of my best friends, Lauren and Nikki up and one of their boyfriends and then of course Ms. Harlan! I can't even begin to describe how much fun we all had! Ms. Harlan is officially 10 months and just sooo much fun to play with. Justin and her bonded while watching the OU game... if only I had taken a pic of Harlan sitting next to him with her bottle while he is explaining the OU game to her... it was priceless!!!!

Lauren, Harlan and I cooked all day on Saturday, went for walks, drank hot apple cider on the front porch and just talked! OH but the best part of the day came when our hot water tank went out on Saturday night.. .what could be better than a house full of people and no hot water! Don't worry though, Justin's dad Kimbo came to the rescue on Sunday morning and we now have a brand new one that is working great! I just need to apologize to Brett and Nikki since they didn't get to take showers while they were here! Justin and I both apologize for not being great hosts and we really really hope that they will come back down and stay soon! We promise it will be a much better weekend!

And finally (Nikki and Lauren know what I am talking about) I just want to tell the girlie's thank you for being there for me this weekend... I could not have prayed for a better weekend for everything to happen on. To have my closest friends by my side was truly a blessing. Thank you girls and I love you!

And now some pics of my favorite little niece...

Hope everyone has a great week!

Kellys Korner - What you Make or Sell

Hi all! So this week at Kellys Korner she is hosting "Show us what you make or sell"... So I thought this would be the perfect time to show off everything that I have been making for the past month or so! To everyone that is new to my blog.... I am very new at actually selling my onesies, tutus, shirts, etc. (I usually just made them as gifts) but since I have had such a great response to all my gifts, I decided to go ahead and try selling them and it's been crazy ever since! The lord has truly blessed me with allowing me to pursue a hobby that I thoroughly enjoy and to have such an amazing group of friends and family that have helped spread the word to everyone about my new little hobby! I hope that you enjoy!

Onesies/Shirts/Tutu's/Bows/Tutu Dresses

These are just some pics that I have taken of items that I have made for gifts, to sell, etc. If there is something that you are interested in having me make that you don't see on my blog, please just email me at

and I will let you know if I can!

Also I can make matching hairbows for all the outfits or you can add a kufi hat or crochet headband/hat to any outfit!

I am so glad that you stopped by and I hope that you will come back soon to see new items and to see when I set up an etsy shop, website, etc.
